mouseio agias annas 02One of the most important historical – folkloric – and cultural oasis can without a doubt be the Folklore Museum of Agia Anna in North Evia which was founded by the late great Agia Annian folklorist Dimitris Settas.

The museum was opened on July 25, 1982 and till 2002 was functioning in rented premises. Following it was moved to a privately owned building, till today and was donated by Aggeliki Malamoy, in memory of her daughter Kristallia Diakomopoulou.

360-wide

At the museum, one can see through the exhibition, the beauties of the surrounding Nilea area from the Turkish conquest till today.
Some of the exhibits include household utensils and textiles, farming tools, as well as tools used for livestock, weapons, traditional knitting and weaving, a great amount of photography from the files of Dimitris Setta and also a small library with his works. What really catches the eye though is the traditional dress of Agia Anna. All of the exhibitions are from the surrounding area and nearby villages but also other parts of North Evia; these exhibits are all evidence of the tireless attempt of the founder to collect folkloric material.
